About Pavilion

The Vision & Mission

PAVILION is an extensive knowledge base of trusted resources related to DoD PA/VI that is accessible, searchable and available 24/7.

Designed and implemented as a learning tool for fleet and field, PAVILION expands the DINFOS mission to train and sustain professional communicators for the Department of Defense and its partners, no matter their mission or experience.

Plan of Action


PAVILION Has You Covered

PAVILION will meet the demand for resources that cover a full range of subjects and tasks by engaging the entire DoD community as participants and owners. PAVILION will utilize the collective expertise and knowledge base through active involvement.

PAVILION Connects You to Resources

Resources are curated, developed and pulled from training courses, fleet and field and industry as well as crowd sourced from the DoD community of users. To maintain the highest levels of integrity, resources are thoroughly vetted and undergo an extensive review process. Subject matter experts from the schoolhouse, fleet and field and a governance board ensure that resources meet the highest criteria of value and accuracy.

PAVILION will extend an effort to involve members of the DoD community through the curation of resources as well as user testing participants and subject matter experts. Get involved!


As priorities, strategies and technology shift and grow, PAVILION will expand and pivot to meet the need.
